Plantation
2013-2014

Plantation is a series of temporary installations using printed images of container plants found in residential streets of Taipei City. The original photos document various ways residents arrange potted plants outside of their front doors to mark territory as well as decorate the front of their homes. I make 1:1 prints of these photos onto vinyl or canvas and install them on empty walls in the neighborhood where they were taken. This intervention of images, however subtle, emphasizes the domestic creativity seen in semi-public spaces and transforms them into picturesque objects that have a practical purpose.
